Courses/Exams at a Cheaper Price and TESU Admissions Question

I don't think this really applies anymore... that or it is very subjective.

Though maybe it is due to the source of credits? They say 24 credits from an RA university or the student needs ≤ 24 credits from alternate providers PLUS good scores on the accuplacer. I hadn't seen the accuplacer requirement before, so maybe that is the difference.

I don't remember anyone between the ages of 18-21 years old being turned down. I've been watching for it because my daughter was planning to apply next year when she is 19.

Someone in a yahoo group posted that their 16-year-old was turned down with 90 credits. The letter they received from TESU (Director of Admissions & Enrollment) stated that they don't accept students under the age of 18, however, should their academic endeavors "bring you back this way once you have turned 18, I look forward to hearing from you at that time." That definitely leaves the door open to 18-year-olds who have the required 24 RA credits.

Also, I need to know about TESU's admissions. I read TESU's admissions and I know that I don't need to take the SAT or ACT and I need a high school diploma or GED but I was home-schooled and while I did graduate from an accredited private high school for home-schooled students and have a complete High School portfolio (I was accepted into my local community college) along with a high school diploma. Will I have any issues with enrolling in TESU once I get all of my 117 college credits before registering for the final capstone?

Please help me out as best as you all can. Thank you!

TESU probably won't ask for a copy of your HS diploma unless they have reason to believe you have not graduated HS. As I recall there is just a list of conditions that you must accept as part of the application which includes meeting the academic and age requirements (since you must be at least 21 years old to enroll at TESU now.)

If you are under 21, but over 18, the admissions requirements can be viewed here: https://www.tesu.edu/academics/catalog/u...ons-policy

Also you will need to take the Cornerstone as well as the Capstone

I assume the OP isn't active military, so the waiver those under 21 but over 18 doesn't really seem important. The restriction is 21+ now for most people.

You stopped at the first section; the second section would apply to the OP (if under 21), as Study.com is an approved University course provider :

Admission Waiver:

    Applicants (degree seeking and non-matriculated) who are 18-20 years, and who do not meet the military criteria for admission may apply for special consideration by:
        If you possess a high school degree or GED equivalent, and have earned a minimum of 24 credits from a regionally accredited college/university with a grade point average of 2.0 or higher.
        Complete the Age Waiver Petition Request Form
    Applicants who have earned less than 24 credits or have earned their credits from an approved University course provider who is not regionally accredited must take the Accuplacer, Next Generation examination within 30 days of applying and achieve scores of:
        Reading Comprehension: 236 or higher
        Sentence Skills: 241 or higher
        Arithmetic: 216 or higher

The change was that they used to grant waivers as young as 16, but now they won't grant them to anyone below 18.
